Don’t miss them! Winners of the Young Tradition competition in Burlington, Vermont (2009) and Prix de la Culture Desjardins in Québec (2010), the five members of « the latest and youngest band out of the hot Québécois traditional music scene » (fRoots) are inspired by roots music passed down from their families and learned at music camps and in jams. Their performances are entrancing and sparkle with unpretentious, natural talent and respect for their repertoire – including beautifully arranged original and folk-trad songs and tunes (both French and English). As the offspring of veteran trad musicians, they have grown up with and learned their craft firsthand from some of Québec’s finest in a region famous for its traditions. They’ve already graced the stages at major venues in Canada and the US. Their first album was recorded with a grant from the Lanaudière Youth Fund and the Québec Arts Council (2011). A new recording is in the works in time for summer touring in 2014. A fresh, exciting and utterly disarming sound!
